Who can blame Gatsby when Daisy is being played by the lovely Carey Mulligan? Though we first fell in love with her in the 2005 adaptation of Pride & Prejudice, it's her ravishing red carpet style that has us on constant Carey watch. Donning everything from simple silhouettes adorned with subtle jewels to high-shine confections twinkling with enchantment, we are consciously under this British beauty's style spell, and we have no plan of ever coming out. While promoting her latest film, The Great Gatsby, Carey Mulligan has been on a chic streak, showcasing dashing designs from Lanvin, Prada, and Victoria Beckham — just to name a few. Get ready to be captivated by this leading lady's effortless elegance in 49 dazzling looks.
While Kate Bosworth is fascinating to watch for her talents on screen — her latest film Black Rock hit theaters earlier this month — it's her offscreen expertise as a red-carpet beauty, street-chic queen, and jewelry maven that has us under a major style spell. By mixing up Isabel Marant, her own JewelMint pieces, Proenza Schouler, Burberry, and Calvin Klein (to name a few), Kate has proven her undeniable knack for putting together laid-back, impossibly cool ensembles with enviable ease. Case in point: her cutoffs and American flag tee at Coachella two years ago incited a near-overnight fashion craze and a siege of street-style copycats. We could go on and on about how she gets it so right, but we'd rather just see her envy-inducing outfits for ourselves. Click through to get a healthy dose of inspiration now.

Can we talk about Miranda Kerr's amazing fashion sense? It's no secret Miranda has solidified herself in the street-style hall of fame, but the Australian beauty has also mastered the art of turning up the heat on the red carpet. Showcasing her flawless figure in body-hugging creations, high-shine minidresses, and carefully cutout gowns, Miranda's penchant for sexy silhouettes makes her a red-carpet favorite. To be fair, she doesn't always opt for seductive styles, as evidenced by the ethereal, embellished Valentino confection she wore at this year's Vanity Fair Oscars party. Whether channeling a '50s pinup or a Grecian goddess, it's clear Miranda's style savvy knows no limits, and in honor of her recent birthday, we're looking back at her best red carpet moments yet.
